    Constructicons! Form Devastator.

    Devastator VS Omega Supreme

    Parts used for this upgrade/modification:
    - Lego Bionicle (Upper body)
    - Lego Blocks (Lower body)
    Shoulders and elbows are on ball joints. Knees are now on ratchet joints.

    Everything is structurally sound. You can hold Devy via his head and nothing will fall off.

    I like the arms, but the bionicle feet on his thighs look really bad. Might wanna adjust him a tad at the hips too so he doesnt have saddle crotch.

    Thanks. Will see if I can find another configuration for his hips.

    Thanks. Waist is secured via ball joint. No mod on Longhaul required. :)

    I appreciate all if the work you put in here, but I have a real issue with Bonecrusher and scavenger not playing any part in the arms at all. I've seen people make arms like these, but peg the bots to the biceps to make it look like they are structural.

    Thanks cnomis

    Hi Tom. I agree with you re: BC and Scv. I wanted a different approach with this Dev since I already did a Dev (WST sized) before with Bc and Scv serving as real shoulders/biceps.

    Here's the link:

    Thanks guys and I appreciate all the comments.

    Those appear to actually be old Mega Bloks feet, not Bionicle.
    Lego is a quality brand which started making plastic blocks (I bet you already knew that) in 1958, whereas Mega Bloks is a much newer brand of slightly inferior quality which seems to be hoping to sell products by using similar plastic blocks and hoping that a parent won't be paying attention and grab a Mega Bloks set instead of a Lego one. Therefore mistaking Mega Bloks for Lego is roughly equivalent to mistaking Optimus Prime for Cy-Kill.

    Sorry, I've just seen too many comments confusing the two and the former Lego fan in me was getting rather frustrated so I had to get that out of my system. :redface2: 

    However, I somewhat agree about the hips. They do look quite wide. Otherwise, great Devastator! :thumb
